Some of our students have wanted to give feedback on their experience with Ludo Expression. They come from a variety of backgrounds, mainly English-speaking (English, Irish, Australians, Americans, Canadians and New Zealanders, among others). They talk openly about everything at our centre; the teachers, the courses, the accommodation, the activities and life in Carcassonne.
Browsing their comments will, we hope, give you a better idea of who we are, how we work with the students and how we help them throughout their stay.
Happy reading – and come to see us soon!

A feeling of home
It is such a pleasure to write about this small city in southern France which greets visitors with La Cite, an ancient fortified city and castle, and then, below, a 13th century town on a river. The lower town has many other things of which to boast, too. – several large historical churches, a fine Museum of Art, many interesting shops, as well as expansive parks and gardens along the river, plus many other things.
Another outstanding offering is the language school, Ludo Expression, for persons wishing to further their skills in the French language.
Equipped with a small number of excellent teachers, par none; superb both in their teaching techniques as well as their sympathetic care for the students and their progress, the school accepts only a limited number of students. Students quickly befriend one another in its small classes, and the school takes on a feeling of home, away from. home.
While I have felt stress in other language learning environments, I believe it does not exist in the Ludo Expression school. The unlimited generosity of the couple who have made the school what it is, are a guarantee that the time passed here will be pleasant and special for all!
Living in the ever present sense of ongoing history, while glimpsing the glory of the massive walled city above on the hill, has, in only 2 weeks passage, taken me from a tourist’s perception into almost a feeling of becoming a Carcassonne resident! My treasured memory – to which I hope to return!

Fun and memorable lessons
My French has improved enormously as a result of the time I spent at Ludo Expression. Dominique is an excellent teacher and her expressive gestbdffbbfdbfdbnations ensure the lessons are fun as well as memorable. I stayed in Caunes Minervois, a little village about 25 minutes drive from Carcassonne, and would strongly recommend any of the 1, 2 or 3 bedroom houses owned by Ingrid Hudson (www.mysweetgite.com). Staying in a quiet medieval village and going to school in Carcassonne was perfect to experience a wonderful French way of life. Thank you (again) Dominique for taking me to a much higher level of French and, more particularly, thank you for your treasured friendship.
One-to-one lessons for 2 weeks, September 2011.
Humour and enthusiasm
I am indeed thinking of taking some more refreshment one-to-one courses at LUDO EXPRESSION again.
